Pros

A fashion forward company that really teaches sales associates the current trends and how to give great customer service.

Cons

There is no room to move to corporate if that is what you want, very hard to get off the retail management track.

    A good "for now" job

    Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Las Vegas, NV
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Las Vegas, NV

    Pros

    - Great associate discounts (30% off, new quarter weekends give us 45% off)
    - Good upbeat music
    - Friendly co-workers and generally friendly managers
    - Fashionable store, love the style
    - Love the creativity I can put into my work outfits
    - 5 hour shifts... better than other retail places with 3 or 4 hr shifts

    Cons

    - Pressure to meet goals to "go green" and extreme pressure for the Express Credit Card
    - No recognition for doing a good job, but a lot of criticism for things you do wrong
    - BAD HOURS. Despite the 5 hour shifts, you'll probably only work one or two days out of the week. Many associates have second jobs because of this.
    - Many on-call hours, which they don't even use 99% of the time.
    - Managers play favorites.
    - Bad pay and bad hours for such expensive clothes.
    - No discount on red tag items.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rid the on-call hours and have better training for new associates. I didn't really know how to "sell" until a new quarter meeting where an old associate helped me with how to sell and add on

    Current Employee - Full Time Sales Lead in Franklin, TN

    Pros

    The discount was awesome! 30% for PT, 40% for FT, and an additional 15% when they're feeling frisky.

    Cons

    Most of the managers are clueless about how to actually run a store. If the weekly meeting is about every number is down, maybe something should be changed??? Communication between managers and associates is limited on purpose because "associates don't need to understand why we're doing this." Too much gossip, not enough work being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Come down off the throne and get to know the little people so everyone can work TOGETHER.
